Unforgettable Vitage Strawberry Brooch
An impressive vintage nephrite jade and red coral, 14-carat yellow gold ‘strawberry’ brooch. The brooch has been modeled in the form of a strawberry plant featuring three strawberries and three leaves. The plant is ornamented with carved red coral strawberries and claw set carved nephrite* jade leaves. The brooch secures to the reverse of the wirework frame with a hinged pin and safety clasp and is hallmarked to the reverse of the setting with the mark for 14 ct gold. The brooch is a very good gauge of gold and is in excellent condition with a clear hallmark to the reverse of the frame. NOTE* Jade may either be jadeite or nephrite. These two minerals have different physical and chemical characteristics, yet they can look quite similar.
